Surrounded by magnificent house facades, in the middle of a spacious pedestrian zone and opposite the historic Hofbräuhaus, you will find the Ayinger am Platzl. Housed in one of Munich's oldest buildings, the upscale pub is a place that breathes history.

The Bavarian pub is as deeply rooted in Munich's history as its beer culture. It was first mentioned in records in 1525 - today, the Inselkammer family runs it in the third generation. The food and décor of Ayinger am Platzl are just as locally rooted as the building.

Wood-paneled walls in the interior along with chic metal elements, cozy seating niches and rustic antlers create a stylish Bavarian flair. A real eye-catcher is the new bar counter, which will be put into operation in mid-2021. Noble copper meets fir-green tiles here.

The Ayinger am Platzl thus skilfully manages the balancing act between tradition and modernity - in line with its self-proclaimed motto "Living pub tradition in a historic location". Fittingly: The menu with must-haves of local cuisine such as ox cheeks, roast pork and fried chicken. Two fish dishes and vegetarian-vegan dishes such as chickpea gnocchi or herb saitlings can also be found on it, as well as various soups and salads. Everything in Top quality and modernly interpreted. The ingredients also come exclusively from regional producers.

We follow the recommendation of the day - a wonderfully tender entrecote - and also try the Wiener schnitzel. Wonderfully thin, wonderfully delicious! We were particularly taken with the two desserts: wheat beer tiramisu and Kaiserschmarrn with caramelized almonds. A dream - and just as attractively presented as all the other courses!

To go with it, we enjoy a very traditional Ayinger Lager Hell, freshly tapped from the wooden barrel, and a Spatzl - the in-house version of Aperol Spritz with a shot of blood orange liqueur from Bavarian Moonshine distillery along with Lime Juice, Chocolate Bitters and Riesling sparkling wine. Wonderfully refreshing and a great, less bitter alternative to the Italian classic.

In general, Ayinger am Platzl is a wonderful place to enjoy Bavarian cuisine as well as the family-owned brewery's internationally renowned beer and Munich lifestyle. The house with its rich, gothic facade and wide bay window is not listed for nothing. Add to this the attentive service, good food, and the view of picturesque buildings and strolling pedestrians all around - as idyllic and worth seeing as a postcard motif.
